The Squire's Tale

Morris, Gerald
Retelling of Gawain and Arthur from the point of view of Gawain's squire, Terence. My first impression was that there was a lot of chopping up of people for a middle school book.

Words I Had To Look Up:

carious teeth (pg. 58) -- Affected with cavities or decay.
Harridan (pg. 60) -- A woman regarded as scolding and vicious.
Fribble (pg. 60) -- A frivolous person.
recreant knight (pg. 66) unfaithful to duty or allegiance, cowardly.
vinaigrette (pg. 146) -- A small decorative bottle or container with a perforated top, used for holding an aromatic preparation such as smelling salts.
brangle (pg. 181) -- A wrangle; a squabble; a noisy contest or dispute.
